also my rpm and mph needles get stuck but when i lightly tap the clear plastic with my knuckle they start working again, are my needles pressed down to hard causing them to stick?

Gents i had the problem with the dim odometer, it was so fustrating that i was thinking of changing the console. but prior to me doing the expensive thing. i checked the bulb behind the odometer, there are a few. one of them was blown, which corrisponded to the odometer. i was happy as larry as it only cost a few pennys.

regards kal
